International Center of Photography Awarded "Save America's Treasures" Grant
NEW YORK, NY.- The International Center of Photography (ICP) has been awarded a “Save America’s Treasures” grant from the National Park Service (NPS) and the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities (PCAH). It is one of 61 grants awarded from a pool of 338 total applicants nationwide and one of only ten made in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA).

The grant of $57,425 will support the systematic organization and preservation of negatives, personal papers, and film materials in The Robert Capa and Cornell Capa Archive at ICP. The archive reflects the comprehensive creative work of the brothers, who were dedicated to documenting social issues and current events around the world.

“We are grateful to the NEA and its partners for providing ICP with the opportunity to safeguard these extensive archives. The preservation will help future generations understand the social, political, and cultural history in the United States and abroad, as seen through the eyes of these two legendary photographers,” said Willis E. Hartshorn, Ehrenkranz Director, ICP.

As one of very few institutions collecting significant archival material pertaining to the history of photography, ICP will now be able to preserve the Capas’ images, assess their papers, and provide public access to the archive through the ICP Research Center and website.

“Art and culture are the expression of our shared values as a society and serve as our collective heritage. These treasures remind us who we are as a people and often inspire us to be even more—that is, to exercise even greater creativity,” said NEA Chairman Rocco Landesman.
